Your learning. Your way.

Bite-sized learning for busy early years practitioners.

Kinderly Learn is a new online training platform that puts you in control of your learning.

Created in partnership with PACEY, Achievement for all and Bath Spa University.

Bite-sized learningv30

Bite-sized learning

As a busy practitioner, finding the time to do CPD can be difficult. To help with this, each ‘learning bite’ takes only a few minutes to complete. This means you can stay on top of your CPD requirements with a ‘little and often’ approach.

Interactive learningv30

Interactive learning

Watch videos and animations, take quizzes, complete interactive activities. All our learning is designed to be fun and engaging – as well as educational!

Learning on demandv30

Learning on demand

Choose what you want to learn and complete it when and where you want – at home, in the evenings, during nap time. No need to travel long distances or sit through long training courses not suited to your learning needs.

Reflectionv30

Reflective learning

Sometimes learning new things is not enough – you need to reflect on what you have learnt and make sure you put it into practice. ‘Reflection points’ are included in every learning path to help you do this.

Learning to suit you

Choose what interests you from hundreds of learning bites, covering a wide range of topics – behaviour, special educational needs, observations, child development, technology, Ofsted and many more!

It’s a piece of learning that will take between 2-5 minutes to complete.

Our learning bites come in lots of different shapes and sizes – including animations, quizzes, expert videos, fact sheets, interactive scenarios and activities and podcasts. They are all designed to be visual and fun to help you learn and remember things better.

Q.

CPD, or ‘continuing professional development’, is a lifelong process of learning. It’s about aiming for continuous improvement in your knowledge and skills as an early years practitioner, beyond the basic training you did at the start of your career.

CPD in early years education can be carried out in a number of ways – through face-to-face training, online training, webinars, reading magazines or blogs, or sharing good practice through a local childminding or early years group.

Kinderly Learn is unique in that it allows you to do flexible CPD, at a time and place that suits you.

Q.
A.

PACEY recommend practitioners undertake a minimum of 15 hours of relevant training or CPD a year.

There are plenty of learning bites on Kinderly Learn to cover this requirement, but of course, you can supplement it with other types of training as needed.

Q.
A.

It’s entirely up to you!

Kinderly Learn is a completely flexible learning platform – and the bite-sized learning approach means you can dip in and out as often as you wish.

Some practitioners like to put aside a dedicated time to do their CPD each week or month – and the topic-based format for Kinderly Learn means you can just work through a whole section of learning bites in one go.

Alternatively, any time you find yourself with a just a few moments to spare, you can log on and learn something new.

Q.
A.

Yes – you’ll get a ‘CPD Record’ of what learning bites and webinars you have completed and how long you spent learning. You can save this and print it out to show parents, your manager or Ofsted evidence of your CPD. 

Q.
A.

Yes – badges are awarded when you complete a whole pathway of learning bites and there are currently over 30 badges you can work towards!

Certificates are presented for attending a Kinderly Learn live Webinar.

Q.
A.

Yes – by a range of over 50 early years practitioners!

During a two-month trial, 95% of those who tested Kinderly Learn rated the learning bites as ‘Good’, ‘Very Good’ or ‘Excellent’.

Q.
A.

Every learning bite has been developed or reviewed by associates from one of our key partners – PACEY, Early Education or Achievement for All.

In particular, PACEY and the Institute of Education at Bath Spa University have been instrumental in advising on the development of Kinderly Learn and providing the basis for many of our learning bites.

Q.
A.

No – your subscription includes a free webinar every month!

Our webinars are focused on the latest topics in the world of early years education and are run by early years experts specialising in those topics. You can book onto a webinar at any time via the Kinderly Learn dashboard. You can sign up to our free webinars here: Click Here

The Ufi is a charitable trust aiming to improve vocational skills through digital solutions.

In 2017, Kinderly obtained a grant from Ufi to develop a learning platform that would help busy early years childcare professionals access high-quality training through mobile and web-based applications. This grant ended in March 2018 with an evaluation of the project by researchers at the University of West England and Bath Spa University.
